HOW-TO: Make your own annotated multimedia Google map

Now this is cool. I’ve mentioned Google maps before but didn’t realize you could make your own. I’d to see if anyone has done this. Again, my only complaint is lack of detail on the Canadian side. Also, Alec Couros (via Rick’s Canadian cafe) pointed me to Map24 which is an excellent mapping service as well.

But the ability to make it your own…I like that. Okay, it’s fairly technical but it can be done. The instructions are all there. Anyone up for a challenge? I also see a direct connection to my new passion of Geocaching. I’ll likely refrain from showing this one to my father as the daily phone calls from Florida for technology coaching will increase beyond my current capacity.
